He shakes his tiny fists in impotent rage

Jazz Shaw’s CDS-filled rant at Hot Air:

Hillary’s not so smooth path to the White House


So since it’s already pretty much over, I shouldn’t feel bad about airing a few grievances. For full disclosure, I do not come to this subject from some nonpartisan, detached position, as I’m about to explain. I do not like Hillary Clinton. In fact, I pretty much despise her, and have for quite some time. I was angry at her during her time as First Lady when duties involving public policy were essentially handed over to a non-elected (and thereby unaccountable) person simply because she was married to a politician. I was put off by her transparently political, “stand by your man” routine when Bill’s affairs were revealed. (Let’s face it, no matter how skillful of a politician he was, Bill Clinton was a dog. And as a husband he was an embarrassment. She should have had enough pride in herself to give him the boot.) I was frustrated with Hillary when she came on her first carpetbagging tour to my home state of New York to steal our Senate seat. (Though perhaps not as disgusted as I was with the people of the state who took to their fainting couches in droves to coronate her.) It just seems like every experience I’ve ever had involving Hillary Clinton was negative.


I’m not sure how much of Chapman’s take on this is accurate prognostication and how much is wishful thinking, but I certainly hope it’s more of the former. There will have to be a primary, as there are plenty of Democrats who have an appetite for the big chair, and I refuse to believe everyone is just going to wave off the landing to pave the way for her. And the GOP isn’t just going to lay down and die. There is a long history between Hillary and the Republican Party, and plenty of stuff in the records which will all come to light again.

But the country definitely has an appetite to see the first woman president and there’s no denying it. And she’s leaving her current position with strong favorable numbers and four years to plan while having no responsibilities where she might slip up. If it comes to that, though, you can bet I’ll be working hard for the GOP nominee, no matter who we manage to put up next time. Like I said… I just don’t like the woman. And I’m not going to apologize for it.

Just remember Jazz, the Clintons feed and grow strong on your hate.

Seriously though, I don’t know if Hillary will run and if she does run I don’t know if I’ll vote for her. I’ll make up my mind in about three years. We just finished a two-year long death-march campaign. Let’s at least wait until after the mid-terms before we start another one.

    Jeezus H. Comical Khrist on a Kracker. Let the fucking misogyny games begin! And the woman isn’t even running yet. (Not that I think she will.)

  2. HELENK says:

    this is at least the third attack on Hillary Clinton since the reinstatement of backtrack. Yes it has begun. No I doubt if I would vote her this time, too much togetherness with backtrack and most of all Benghazi.

    the backtrack bunch are floating names like Holder and Meeschele to run in 2016. To me both of these people would be unelectable, but I did not think backtrack could be reinstated, so what do I know?
    now that the new democratic party is owned by the backtrack bunch they would not back Hillary, we saw that in 2008. They can talk all they want, but the look over there policy will not work this time.

    • Roberta says:

      I have same feelings…until this year would have supported. But too much campaigning that gave us O again!!! VERY upset with Clintons right now. 😦

      Plus I am sick & tired of Bush, Clinton; Bush, Clinton with an intertlude of O.

      No more Cintons, Bushes, or O’s.

  3. DeniseVB says:

    I still think Hillary should have stayed in the Senate and primaried Obama for 2012. Everything her and Bill said about him in 2008 turned out to be true 😉

    The Dems really need to start building a deeper bench.

    • lyn5 says:

      I also wish she would have stayed in the Senate. However, the Senate boys would have punished her for spanking Bam Bam later in the primaries. Teddy wasn’t going to let her go near healthcare reform. As SOS, she picked party over country, and now we have the Obamacrats who never will support her.

      • OldCoastie says:

        SOS is “party over country”….? Clinton has pretty much been very smart as SOS and I appreciate her efforts… perfect? no… but she’s as far from partisan politics as she can be (in spite of Bengazi) and I think much further than if she were in the Senate.

  4. DeniseVB says:

    The Rising Dem Stars according to the SacBee …..


    Fluke, really? Where’s Cory Booker? Like I said, the Dem bench is hurting for some talent and inspiration.

  5. I’d vote for Hillary in a heartbeat—–unless Condi runs against her!!! Can you imagine that series of debates?

    Hey—-a person can dream……..

    • John Denney says:

      When Hillary and Barack were vying for the 2008 nomination, my boss asked us guys if we’d ever vote for a woman or a black for president. I immediately fist-pumped and said, “Condaleezza Rice! In a heartbeat!”

      Approving laughter all around; end of discussion. 🙂

      BTW, “CondaLeezza” is a transliteration of a Greek word used in the Septuagint, meaning “to strike with the fist.”

      • insanelysane says:

        Former SOS Condalizza Rice is a guest speaker , along with General Wes Clark at the Inaugural events I will be attending. My Godchild and sweetest niece invited Auntie to go with her as a National Scholar to 5 days of Inaugural events in DC.
        I am pumped for this …not for Obama, as I may head on over to some of the Obama protests that will be taking place, but because of the historical event and to spend 5 days with my dear niece.

        I just keep thinking that since I doubt I will ever attend anything like this again, too dang bad it wasn’t Hillary.
        Perhaps I will get a glimpse of her or at the best, actually get to shake her hand and tell her I admire her passion and her smarts.
        Hillary , generally, speaks for me.
        She still has my vote and my energy to elect her in a heart beat.

      • catarina says:

        Condoleeza is derived from the Italian musical term con dolcezza meaning “with sweetness.”

      • angienc says:

        Weren’t you the guy who was here a few weeks back trying to claim the original word from the Greek for “blasphemy” meant slander only with no connection to religion/sacred items?

        You were wrong about your ancient Greek then & you are wrong about your ancient Greek now.

  6. cj says:

    Pretty flimsy reasons for hating her. Because she stood by her man? Because she blamed a right wing conspiracy for the Lewinsky scandal? Is he kidding? There actually *was* a heavily funded RW conspiracy to take down the Clintons that started in Arkansas & ended in impeachment.

    Maybe he’s right about politically active First Ladies; maybe they should actually get officially appointed to something & be forced to go through the process, but that’s his only semi-credible point.

  7. angienc says:

    Jazz Shaw (who, btw, was one of those GOP “pundits” who never fully supported Romney) is exactly why I can never “go” GOP — but don’t fool yourselves, Hillary got the exact same treatment from the Dems in 2008 (it’s why I’m not a Dem anymore either).

    PS — I don’t give a shit if the Dems/MSM (but I repeat myself) are nice to Hillary now, or if they are nice to her in 2016 (if she even runs) — it doesn’t erase everything the Dems did to her in 2008. It is infuriating for me to see morons like Sandra Fluke to stand up there now declaring the Dem party as the party of women — it’s not only lies, it’s revisionist history. Worst of all are the ones who know exactly what happened in 2008 who assimilated back to the borg & supported the Dems this time around — because they aren’t just ignorant, they are fucking dishonest assholes.

    /Rant off.

    • myiq2xu says:

      I’m gonna be disgusted if Fluke is given a free pass to success. I don’t consider getting called nasty names by Rush Limbaugh a qualification for high office.

      • angienc says:

        God, I hadn’t even thought of that — you’re right, that will be totally gross, especially after what happened to Hillary & Sarah in 2008 — two women who PAID THEIR DUES in the real world with a real record.

        But, as this last election proved an actual, verifiable record of accomplishments doesn’t matter — celebrity is all that counts, and Fluke has that. She’ll probably run for (and win) Kerry’s senate seat (assuming he’s appointed as SoS).

        • elliesmom says:

          If Kerry is chosen for SoS, Deval Patrick will go after the seat. He’s term limited and is too young to retire from politics. If he doesn’t go after it then, he might not get another chance for a long time.

        • angienc says:

          ha, ha, elliesmom — I was (half-way) joking about Fluke running for that seat.

        • elliesmom says:

          If Kerry is appointed SoS, I hope Scott Brown goes after the seat again. But I knew you were kidding. It’s just there seems to be a “grand plan” at work behind the scenes in the Democratic Party which doesn’t include our governor. Deval Patrick played the trial balloon for Axelrod’s Obama campaign, and it doesn’t seem to be sitting too well with him that the governorship seems to be the end of the political road for him. There’s always talk about his taking a role in the Obama administration, but no appointment ever materializes. Warren is sucking up all of the air in the Democratic back rooms around here now with serious mention of her as a presidential candidate in 2016. If Kerry doesn’t resign his seat, it will be years before Patrick has a shot at another high level political gig. Fluke has been a useful idiot. But if she wants a career in politics, MA wouldn’t be a good place for her to land for the not too distant future.

      • lyn5 says:

        Don’t hold your breath. I think the Obamacrat women feel that she speaks for them. Gag me with a spoon!

    • HELENK says:

      the last thing the New Democratic party want is a woman with brains.
      Sandra Fluke is nothing but an agitator like backtrack. She promotes the gimme generation and would be easily controlled.

      • elliesmom says:

        Fluke has been a useful idiot, but it’s Elizabeth Warren who’s the next “anointed” one.

  8. tommy says:

    No way is HRC running in 2016. Just ain’t gonna happen. What I understand is that the democratic party has changed drastically. They’d want someone young and hip. They’ll never allow a woman to be on top of the ticket, especially not an older woman, and definitely not HER. I remember what was done to her in 2008. As it is now, initially, she was the frontrunner. So no way am I gonna believe that she’ll run again. I strongly suspect that Cuomo will be the next nominee. As for JazzShaw, hes a pub wingnut. What else do we expect?

    • Erica says:

      Why is it that repub wingnuts and dem obots sound just like each other?

      As far as I’m concerned, they can shake thier tiny fists as much as they want, as long as they shut their outlandish mouths first.

  9. lorac says:

    I think the chances are that Hillary won’t run. but I would probably support her. right now she’s in a “gray area” for me, I am awaiting more info on benghazi, perhaps after she resigns. she may not be perfect, but she’s still heads above most all the rest – she has worked hard for us, very hard, a workhorse, and so strong to get through all the crap thrown at her, and I do still believe she is a true public servant somewhat boxed in at state.
